Some adjustments to more clearly see Ask a Question in Q & A 1.2.1 (new discussion button).

This discussion is related to the Q&A addon.

    The easiest thing would be to create your own view for that module.
    Copy the theme you are using and make it a new theme. In your theme, copy /applications/vanilla/views/modules/newdiscussion.php to /themes/YOURTHEME/views/modules/newdiscussion.php

    You can now edit this copy. You should enclose 2 lines in there:

    $Question = $this->Buttons[1];

    You need $Question['Text'] and Question['Url'] for your custom html and by unsetting the value, you prevent Vanilla from rendering a button with a dropdown arrow.

    You would need to write some lines of JavaScript that change the link of the button depending on the radio button to either $this->Button['Url'] or $Question['Url'] and you can consider to also change the text of the button to either $this->Button['^Text'] or $Question['Text']
